As the title says,
Im currently running two DVI monitors off my HD 6950 and the idle temp is generally 45 degrees, compared to earlier today when I was running just one monitor and the GPU idled at around 30 - 32 degrees.

Is this temperature increase normal?

With 2 monitors, the GPU has to display more pixels, so an increase in temperature makes sense.
